Motorcycle manufacturers, take note: If you want to attract a younger audience to your cruiser-style motorcycles, this is the way to do it. The bike we're referring to is the Moto Guzzi MGX-21 prototype that was displayed at the 2014 EICMA Show in Italy, a heavily customized version of the Italian marque's California 1400 platform.
Meet Eva, the latest electric motorcycle from Energica, freshly revealed at the 100th edition of EICMA (Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori) in Milan. The Italian company has stripped its Ego, turning the bones of its superbike into a naked streetfighter. The result is an eye-catching creation designed to give riders a bit more control, but still capture their hearts.
Curse you, Zero Motorcycles! The biggest producer of two-wheeled electrics has just introduced its 2014 lineup at EICMA in Milan, Italy, and while its mainstay S and DS models host significant improvements and a $1,000-dollar price cut, any savings customers might have realized are likely to be re-invested in the company's new $2,495 Power Pack range extender (more on that below).
